    1. We must not forget about Kanika. A wonderful friend was killed by a premeditated killer for no apparent reason. She had no enemies and seems as though she had no understanding of why she was being stalked by an anonymous individual. Why? and most importantly Who? Who is behind this? Why did you choose her? They know not what they do! You took a loving, caring young person away from us like she was nothing. What did she do to deserve this? If it was done out of rage and randomly it would be one thing. But this person came for her not once, not twice, but three times! I hope that person/organization/group knows that we will not stop until we get answers. You can't kill us all!

    2. These individuals will pay for what they have done. There is a higher authorities than mere mortals. I'm tired of innocence lost to these cowardly monsters. I do know vengeance is the most highs'. I pray that you guys are caught and have to face the loved ones of Kanika, as there are many!, unlike you we won't be your judge a jury. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you Kanika and I'm always talking to you. I'm trying to understand why the FBI has not been involved in a case of someone impersonating a federal agent. I pray that the divine energy allows a break for PG officers in Kanika's case. This will not be just another gory number!!! A desription of the imposter would be great if PG police took the time to obtain one from Kanika.

      I miss you "Kanaka" as I playfully called you since 94', and you will never be forgotten.

      All things done in the dark shall come to light!

    3. I still want to know who and why someone killed Kanika Powell. It's amazing that no reports or information has been reported on this case in over a year.

SHE WAS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS AT CAMP HOWZE, AND I HOPE WITH ALL OF MY HEART HER FAMILY REALIZE'S GOD HOLDS HER IN HIS HEART. SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE AT PEACE IN THE CARE OF HER MAKER. TO THE COWARDS THAT COMMITED THIS HENIOUS CRIME, YOU CAN'T HIDE FOREVER. KANIKA LEFT AN IMPRESSION ON EVEREYONE SHE MET. ARMY FOLKS TEND TO BE SPREAD OUT WELL AND WE PROTECT OUR OWN. KANIKA YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED. MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCE GO OUT TO YOUR FAMILY. SISNEROS YOUR C.M.B. (COLORADO MEXICAN BROTHER) MEDIC'S UP!
